Kahanda Kanda, Galle

Sri Lanka

Intimate and luxurious, this is rural Sri Lanka at its finest

Discover an intimate and luxurious retreat, surrounded by a working tea farm and perched above the rippling Koggala Lake. Unwind in the peace and tranquillity and gaze out over the scenery, while peacocks flaunt their colours in the lush gardens.

Head inside one of the pavilions for the warmest of welcomes from the owner and discover a wonderfully chic interior. Polished concrete floors, Asian antiques and Sri Lankan furnishings await, providing an inviting combination of traditional and contemporary. The draped four-poster beds and vaulted ceilings create a laid-back and luxurious atmosphere that’s a complete delight.

Venturing out of Kahanda Kanda offers plenty. Take a bumpy tuk-tuk ride to historic Galle and its spectacular fort, head out on Koggala Lake and see eagles nesting at dusk, or make a short journey to the coast and feel the sand between your toes.

Visit the massage pavilion for a range of soothing treatments. Enjoy a full body massage with the tea plantation and swaying palms all around for the ultimate relaxation. Cool off with a dip in the infinity pool under the boughs of an ancient tree and lose yourself in your rural location. To treat your taste buds, head to the dining pavilion and indulge in a delightful array of Asian fusion cuisine. With fruit, vegetables and herbs all grown on the estate, the freshest flavours are ensured.
